My low carb experiences

I started on the low carb WOE in 2001. I had always been overweight and
tried everything. Then I picked up the Atkins book on a fluke tried it and
it worked. I went from 202 to 169 in about 1 year got in shape began running
life was great. I followed the advice in the book and found 90g of carbs a
day to be my key number and stuck with it for awhile. Alot of my success had
to do with this news group and the people on it. Then a 2 years ago
something I began eating **** alot of it at first nothing happened because
of my workout schedule then that went out the window soon all the weight
came back. Now here I am trying to get back into this WOE and it is hard
almost impossible I try and fail to redo induction alot. I am writing this
for my own sake and also to let the people in this newsgroup know that the
battle is never over and once you stop this WOE its hard to get it back. I
am hoping that through using this newsgroup again that I can finally succeed
in redoing induction so I will be posting daily menus here over the next two
weeks hoping that I can get some responses and input. Thank you.

The returning to carbs is common among the high percentage of people that
fail to maintain an LC weightloss. As I see it, there is a quite a diverse
variety of foods that fall within a low carb way-of-eating/way-of-life.
Perhaps making an effort to add this low carb variety to your diet could
help you reject the carby stuff comfortably.

90 carbs per day sounds a high to me. However, if that works for you, then
one can't argue with success.

Hiya Patrick.

Very similar experience here. I did the WOE in 2002 for eight months
and lost 40+ lbs. I moved and my schedule got very disrupted, resulting
in me going off the WOE for a few months. I tried to restart several
times, but failed each go. Eventually, I managed to butch up and
restart it. Have been LC now since July, with 39 lbs gone, and have a
hard time imagining going back to carbs in any major way. I think
focusing on the long term effects is key. In the day to day, it is very
hard to feel good about LC at the onset, but now I focus on how great
it feels when I'm doing it right, and how great it is to have less of
me around. The LT perspective is key to making the commitment to LC,
IMHO.

Welcome back and best of luck (even though we make our own luck with
LC).

I've had times like that, too. I found if I kept trying one day it would
just "click" and then I'd be ok. That tended to be during periods when I was
pretty stressed. Just don't give up.
